Yea... I tend not to like how other people upgrade their guns...

I'd only ever buy an upgraded gun if it was upgraded by a reputable guntech.. or being sold by a reputable guntech.

Haha, see this is why I'm glad I asked around first
different opinions are nice
but I am thinking classifieds are the best

and if there are stock than fuck, what was buddy talking about?

thank you Kalnaren and L473ncy
blackcaddi! I will head your info but I just don't want to buy, say an mp5 from a site and get a supersoaker

P.S swearing's ok, right?

Beware of the exchange rates too. You'd be paying in USD if you buy from them. But don't listen to other people. If you're looking for high quality gear, AirsoftGI is a great place to look. Scopes and BBs can be bought from them too. The only thing you can't purchase from them is gun parts and guns because of Canadian law (full metal bodies are prohibited in Canada). I am not age verified yet, but I am told that there is an extensive part of this site dedicated to the purchasing and selling of guns in Canada, for Canadians, that comply with Canadian laws. I suggest you get age verified and look into that!

Good luck!

Airsoft GI does not ship any replica firearms, metal bodies, or BBs to Canada

So be aware before you purchase BB's from Airsoftgi

Ive also just sent them an email asking if they will use USPS to ship up here so I can avoid UPS' rape fees.. err brokerage fees.

Eyal_T is my old account.

I've purchased over 25K BBs from AirsoftGI for very cheap, and it passed the border fine. There's a difference between policy and low-risk transactions... BBs are fine, they'll sell it to you without too much hassle (if any).

Just tried ordering some bb's with some other gear, and recieved an email stating they will not ship them over, so I had to adjust my order.

I noticed that airsoftGI ships with UPS. I had ONE thing shipped with UPS to my door from the US once and they shafted me with a $30 "handling" fee. Does anyone have any experience with UPS and airsoftGI?

That's normal UPS procedure. Brokerage fees.

AirsoftGi is where i bought a fair share of my gear, magazines, Echo1 SPR front set conversion kit (fits great on a G&G M16A3 btw..), and some TSD bbs. They will not ship guns or green gas to Canada. AV'd or not. Doesnt matter. Getting AV'd will give you access to classifieds, i imagine you've now been told this dozens of times. Airsoftgi uses UPS though, and you'll have to pay around 30 bucks when you receive your package. 'Brokerage' fee. Which is a bunch of BS, but whatever. Have fun mate.

They ship BB's to Canada, and BB's are not illegal to be shipped to Canada. Funny how i took advantage of their free 1200 .20 bb give away.. I also ordered 5000 .20 TSD bb's from them. Got em in great condition too.

I received a Package Today from ASGI shipped by UPS and they declared it at a lower value and as a Commercial sample. NO duty and or Brokerage was applied to the package. IT was a large package as well. Obviously individual results may vary but this is the second package I have gotten from them without a hitch.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to share my utmost satisfaction in resolving a shipment/order error with AirsoftGI. It actually concerned BBs, so I know they will ship to Canada. They called me at home and said something like "We'll be shipping you the right items, by USPS this time, to avoid those brokerage fees...".

Me: "Euh... Great! Thanks a lot!"

I did get raped on the Customs Brokerage fees 40$CAD for 270$CAD, but I'm waiting to see how much if anything via USPS, which they adjusted from UPS when I mentionned the said fees.

Happy shopping! A strong canadian dollar has its up-sides!

I bought my M4 from BuyAirsoft.ca, and I had a great experience with it. It was quick and painless, and I got a good product from them. I also found their stock and prices very nice for someone just starting in, and doing it on a student budget.

If you are going to be buying used, be very careful about it. My buddy did that and he now has two "display" only guns.

ASGI do ship BB's to Canada and they fake your invoice to avoid duties and the associated brokerage fee.

I have placed multiple orders to the US and Hong Kong over the last month and not one of them incurred any extra fees at all

Beware of ASGI having items that say they are "in stock" on their site and then email you later after you've paid in full to say the item is out of stock, which is really frustrating when you order only 3 items and it takes you a whole week just to find out that two of the three items aren't in stock. Then it's another week wait to get your refund through Pay Pal.

I would never buy anything airsoft related from a Canadian retailer (other than a full metal gun) because I don't feel I should be the one to put their kids through college so the US and HK get all my gear $.
